OK, folks. Father’s Day is coming this weekend. What are you buying for your dad or the father figure in your life? Haven’t figured that out yet? Look no further. In fact, let’s go with something he’ll love, something that’s a true summer style essential. Which begs the question: What does summer style mean to you and the father figure in your life? Does it mean stylish linen shirting, tailored shorts, clean sneakers and a cold beer in hand? Does it mean an adventure-ready watch teamed with a go-anywhere classic tee and rugged denim? Or perhaps … something else? Whatever it means to you, I guarantee this week’s edition of The List has summer style essentials aplenty, and gear you’ll both love. Let’s get to it.
Taylor Stitch Navy Mini Gingham Linen Shirt — $125
What’s the best way to take on summer? With a subtly stylish, well-cut linen shirt from Taylor Stitch. Preppy without going overboard — ideal for the stylish dad (yourself included).
It truly wouldn’t be summer if we didn’t recommend a durable dive watch, would it? Featuring abrushed stainless steel case, a vintage diver design and a sporty slipthrough strap, the Bailene Watch has “investment-worthy” all over it — what dad doesn’t love a great watch, right?
Although there’s a waitlist at the time of this writing, the first-ever dress shoes from Thursday Boots are proving to be a versatile hit. Classic Oxford dress shoes like these ones work with summer style combos aplenty.
The same great fit as your favorite Levi’s jeans, yet this time upgraded in a stretch fabric that’s perfect if you’re the type to bike or walk to work. Tailored style, a clean fit and plenty of mobility — what’s not to love about the Commuter 511 Pants?
My friends, that’s the end of today’s edition of The List. Which of the above picks can you simply not get enough of? For my money’s worth, I simply love the Bailene Watch from our friends at Nezumi Studios. Feel free to let me know your thoughts via The Style Guide Facebook page.
